Modern Calligraphy






The advantage of working at an office where the average age is well over fifty, is the fact that I get introducded to hobbies I wouldn't have known of otherwise. One of my coworkers is an amazing calligrapher and when I saw some of his work, I asked him to show me how to do it. He introduced me to some of the basics and referred me to a few good books. I then started researching different writing styles and found that there is a modern twist to calligraphy. A seemingly effortless, yet gorgeous way of writing. I was especially impressed with Emily McDowell's greeting cards, This is exactly the style I am going for. Below you will find my first attempts on modern calligraphy and if you visit my pinterest board, you'll find lots of alphabets and inspiration for calligraphy. Have a nice weekend!
